It's been a while.
I've been traveling a good deal lately, but that's only the half of it. Those following my Twitter feed will note I've spent some time in Switzerland, some time in New York and New Jersey, and the other places I've visited? None of your beeswax!
But two things have chiefly occupied my time lately: the finishing of several stories and the adjustment to a tighter budget.
These stories that I have just lately formulated passable drafts for involve the recent and distant history of the illustrious organisation to which I belong – the Inter-National Society for Exploring Nature, Science and the Ésoteric (INSENSÉ). Hopefully these stories prove to be of interest, and result in nominally increased sales for the august publications that they eventually appear in.
There is the other matter of the tighter budget. It appears those fools from the Illuminati (AKA the Bud Light of shadowy organisations vying for world control) are messing around with the economy again, those bastards, and it's throwing both world governments and INSENSÉ for a bit of a loop. I had my latest grants denied, and right now INSENSÉ can't subsidise my inter-galactic pan-dimensional deathray research, either. I've had to scale back a bit, and I'd be lying if I said it hadn't thrown me for a bit of a loop.
Hopefully, hopefully, this is the end of my ætherweb-malaise, however. There have been spurts of activity, of course, but six weeks is far too long to go without proper blog updates.
By the way, I have some upcoming public appearances:
16 May – Steampunk Picnic in Central Park
5 June – Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors... the fashion show bit.
13 June - SNAP* Ultimate Alt Couture Shoot
Oh, and if you're not going to DragonCon, you might want to reconsider this decision.
That's all for now...
